This resource contains a 20-minute long, fully-narrated instructional video depicting the stepwise procedure for the preparation of tooth #19, a mandibular left first molar, for a full crown cast restoration using a chamfer-type finishing line. The procedure is performed on a mannequin mandible. The presentation goes from the unprepared tooth to the completed preparation with access to the facial, mesial, distal, occlusal, and lingual aspects of the tooth by means of chapter markers. The audio-video presentation of the preparation of a mandibular tooth to be restored with a full cast crown serves as a guide for the understanding and implementation of the procedure. The visuals allow for enhanced and enlarged unobstructed close-up views. The narration explains precisely why and how the procedure is performed.
By the end of this session, learners will be able to:
- Prepare a mandibular first molar for a full cast crown restoration.
- Achieve a preparation that satisfies the criteria for the fabrication of a full metal crown restoration.
- Follow the steps necessary to appropriately reduce and shape the entire tooth for the requirements of a full crown restoration.
